Said on Mayael the Anima...

Im glad to see a new player building a 3 color deck! Many new players stick to the 1 or 2 color builds to keep it simple. I see where you are going with your deck, but I have a few suggestions. Many of these are things you will see in tons of decks as "staple cards" while playing with other people. I am sticking to budget suggestions you can add in for $10-15 and can be used in any deck if you choose to build another.

  • I do agree that you should take advantage of the green in your deck to add some ramp spells. Llanowar Elves, Cultivate and Skyshroud Claim are all recent reprints that would be budget buys for the deck.

-Your land base needs a little work since you are running three colors, but once again you can do this on a budget! Any of the bounce lands from Iconic Masters are all super cheap and help with color fixing. Boros Garrison, Gruul Turf and Selesnya Sanctuary give you 2 colors and bounce a land so you dont miss the following land drop if you're short. Also any of the tapped dual lands from M19 will work too, theyre not fast but they work. I would also look into getting Command Tower, Opal Palace, Evolving Wilds and Myriad Landscape. These are some budget staple cards you will learn along the way from play experience. Also you can lose 1-2 lands to free up space for other cards. 36-37 lands is your standard land count.

-I see why you like the idea of the cards that say on your next end step lose the game since you're running Exquisite Archangel but its alot of focus on something that can be shut down and then you lose! Since your spells are not permanents, you cant give the "game ending effects" to your opponents. I would take them out for other spells or some artifacts to help boost you ramp/speed. Put in a Sol Ring (staple in all EDH decks) or some signets: Gruul Signet, Selesnya Signet or Boros Signet.

-Put in a few more creatures to get value from Mayael the Anima's ability. A lot of new cards are 5 or more power with some enter the battlefield effects like Demanding Dragon.

Those are my budget build ideas for you to work on, I like the deck and the commander. While you're playing with people write down names of cards or take a picture of cards that you see people playing that would work in your deck. You'd be surprised at some of the budget cards that are really powerful with the right commander! Let me know if you have questions about anything, and welcome to the wonderful world of EDH!!!

Thank you for the suggestions! With the group at my LGS, I personally know the game ending effects of Triumph of the Hordes way too well! haha I have seen many games ended with that card alone so I do agree it would be a good addition to the mix. I am not against the idea of Craterhoof Behemoth + Tooth and Nail . I have an extra Craterhoof lying around and Avenger of Zendikar has gotten very cheap with the amount of reprints it has seen. It also does go with the overall theme of this deck, which is to fill the board with smaller threats and turn them into big threats. Thank you again for the suggestions!

Thanks for the idea, I am se used to running my Atraxa deck and being able to add the counters on as you go. With Pir the strategy is similar but much different since his ability can be used at any time rather than just the dn step phase with Atraxa. I will definitely be switching it out for Coalition Relic. Thanks again!

Thank you ownagefactory! I didnt think of using blink effects and copies. The idea of using the legendary rule in your favor is pretty sick with both Pir & Toothy's abilities. I will definitely work some of those into the deck. I am very interested to see where I can end up with this deck. I feel that they have been under rated as a commander so far which is the main reason I wanted to build them. Thanks for showing me another way to upscale their powers!

Thanks for the comment! I did look into a few more planeswalkers that would interact nicely with the deck. Pir has great interactions with creatures and walkers alike. My main issue right now is budget. I've been building a lot of decks over the last 2 months and wallet fatigue is hitting me hard! Let alone the fact that Commander 2018 releases in a week. I do not proxy any card in my decks, and since I have an Atraxa Superfriends deck I do own the walkers just not willing to proxy them! I will continue to upgrade this deck once I catch back up haha
